After examining him, vets determined that Gibson would need to have his leg amputated, as too much damage had been done when he was shot. No one is sure how the sweet dog was shot, but Gibson handled his injuries with such a great attitude, despite how much pain he was in.
"He is fantastic with all people he meets," Connie Field of Love-A-Stray told The Dodo. "He is one very sweet dog!"
Not long after arriving into the care of the rescue, Gibson had his leg amputated and became a three-legged dog. The staff weren't sure how Gibson would react to waking up and suddenly having only three legs, but the change didn't seem to faze him at all.
